No one can deny that one of the greatest advantage of having a rooted device is having the Xposed Framework running under the hood. But that needs rooting my device. I'm unwilling to do that as it's my dad's new phone and is less than 6 months old. I've recently hypothesized a way to install the framework without rooting the device. But I cannot test it as I mentioned the phone is damn new, so an advice is welcome.
In the android recovery there is an option to apply update from sd card. I think I can flash the image file of the custom recovery TWRP from the recovery. After I'm done and things go the right way I can flash the Xposed installer .zip file from TWRP and then will get Xposed working fine.
The Xposed Framework after installation behaves as a system app and can work fine without root access, it only needs the root access while installation of the .zip file.
It would be a great help if anyone can help me. Please guide me through the process so that I can have the Xposed Framework w/o rooting my phone.
